One chicken to measure them all

Joe J Thomas, voice actor and creator of the blog Joe’s Dump, recently proposed an awesome new system of measurement, The Rubber Chicken Standard. What with the Metric System failing to take off in the US and his opinion that the Imperial System isn’t very intuitive, Joe argues that it’s high time we all agreed on a new standard of measurement:

I’ve chosen the Archie McPhee Deluxe Rubber Chicken as a new standard of measurement. The reason is simple: every culture knows what a chicken is, and a rubber chicken is easier to use because it won’t spoil.

One rubber chicken is the basic unit of measurement. (How many chickens tall are you?) But Joe goes on to propose the use of a “Kilo-Chicken” (kc) for measuring really large objects (It’s the size of 1,000 Rubber Chickens):

And the “Micro-Chicken” (uc) for measuring really tiny things:
